What a wonderful place in a great location. Breath-taking views across the lake at the Remarkables, from the cosy warmth and comfort of your lounge. We went in Winter for skiing and had a two bedroom apartment (Two adults, teenage daughter and a 7 year old). It has its price, but everything was top notch, from the heating (heatpump, underfloor...

Everything about this place was perfect for us. From our first email enquiry to the "hurry back" at check out, the Pounamu team looked after us very well. The apartment (ours was two bedroom / two bathroom) was really well appointed and super comfortable - big beds with down pillow-tops (like sleeping in a cloud, according to my wife...and she's...

We had a two bedroom Premier Apartment which was perfect for our family of three - one teenage son (the second room easily caters for two). The apartment was very well equipped - underfloor heating (very cosy); gas log fire (didn't need because of the underfloor heating), 2 x TV, DVD, dishwasher, PC, Wi-Fi that works! etc. and fantastic view...

We stayed at Pounamu Apartments for five nights as a family of four with two small children. The 2 bedroom apartments facing Frankton road with breathtaking mountain and lake views... I can only say that it was an unforgettable experience staying in such a beautifully designed and perfectly equipped apartment. I can still remember the big eyes and facial expressions... More

Overall the acoomodation was clean, pleasant and modern. A choice of flat and/or puffy pillows would be nice and temperature control in the bedroom. Staff were friendly but you may want to lay new floor boards so guests can wear their shoes inside. Storage for ski gear was a great idea and the gas fireplace was excellent. Also the bed... More

Our 2 bedroom premier apartment was great, we could not have asked for anything more. Underfloor heating gas log fire, air con, TV/DVD fully equipped kitchen. We stayed with our 2 older teenage kids and there was plenty of room and bathrooms for all of us. Our hosts were friendly and helpful when we had questions. It is a decent... More

Hi MelIndaQ211 Thank you for your review and yes, I agree the views are beautiful. The team appreciate your lovely feedback and thoroughly enjoy taking care of our guests! The walk into town, along the lakeside and beach is spectacular – certainly worth the 10 minute stroll down through the gardens, especially at sunset. I skip the main road ..... More

We had a terrific time at Pounamu. A terrific location and well set up for skiing. The provision of ski lockers in the underground car park was very welcomed. Great for a family in gorgeous Queenstown. Highly recommended.

Pounamu Apartments have an amazing lake and mountain view that one can enjoy all day long. It simply takes your breath away. The furniture and appliances are modern, elegant, practical and luxurious. The staff, especially Ro, is very helpful and will go out of their way to ensure that guests make the most of their time in Queenstown.

Whist the hosts are very pleasant folks, and the apartments modern, they're a bit cold and boring. The balconies are tiny and overlook a very busy street. The barbecue area is awful as is the jacuzzi, which is also tucked between two buildings and also overlooks the same busy street. Was there with 15 others on an annual golf trip.... More

They are well appointed & have a great view. IF you are booking a STUDIO (i.e 1 single room) stay somewhere else. You can't walk around the bed as the room is... More
